The children, staff and I warmly welcome you to Heathlands Primary Academy!
We are a small and friendly primary school in Bournemouth proud to be serving our local community. We provide a quality education and nurturing environment for our children from 3 to 11 years old.
Our modern, spacious facilities allow our children to explore and learn in a variety of ways using both indoor and outdoor learning environments. As well as outdoor learning spaces as an extension to the classrooms from pre-school to Year 4, we also have our own spinney, Maths Outdoor Learning Environment (MOLE) and roundhouse!
At Heathlands we know and understand that children learn in many different ways and our curriculum aims to provide a range of opportunities for everyone. This includes visitors and experts, trips to museums and historical places, dress-up days and fundraising for local and national charities. All of these empower our children and ignite their curiosity and thirst for learning.
Alongside our nurturing ethos we also have a passion for sport. Our 'Fitness Fridays' allow the children to experience a range of sports and outdoor activities taught by qualified coaches and specialists. These have included tag-rugby, street dance, archery, football, tennis and Scouting.
As Headteacher at Heathlands Every member of staff works incredibly hard for our children to ensure they have the best start to their education possible.
